a proper grisly afternoon, we decided to climb this corbett and its tops fronm near the little wind turbine, not much in the way of paths.. but once on the ridge it was fairly easy going.. short grass, knobbly rocks and a round trig which isnt the true sustig_nest20/09/2009
Solo. From Coireshubh on the road to Kinloch Hourne. After ascending to the trig point of Sgurr nan Eugallt. Descended south and then SE to reach the summit of Sgurr a' Chlaidheimh West Top. Reached the summit of Sgurr a' Chlaidheimh. I descended without too much difficulty by going northwards and then NE to reach the road not far from the car. The walk had seen mostly good visibility and dryness.pwbellarby04/07/2008
